CCR Re has successfully launched 157 Re 23 its fifth sidecar vintage

157 Re 23

CCR Re has successfully sponsored the 2023 vintage of its 157 Re sidecar.

Boussard & Gavaudan Investment Management LLP (BGIM) increased CCR Re’s Property Cat risks underwriting capacity on a worldwide basis. This third compartment strengthens the relationship with BGIM as reference investor which, for the third consecutive year, renewed their confidence in CCR Re and its underwriting policy.

At the initiative of all stakeholders, 157 Re 21 innovates with a Responsible Investment approach by investing all the sidecar assets in bonds issued by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). This is the first time that a sidecar uses EBRD bonds. 157 Re thus aims to progressively fulfil the largest possible number of ESG criteria.

Sponsor of 157 Re, CCR Re benefited from the support of its investors, the expertise of Willis Re Securities (acting as structuring and placing agent), France Titrisation (acting as management company), BNP Paribas Securities Services (acting as custodian bank) and Linklaters acting as transaction counsel.


In an extremely tight retrocession market, characterised by the withdrawal of numerous players, CCR Re has succeeded in increasing the capital raised by more than 40% compared to 2022.

This success is based on the renewed confidence of those involved in the previous vintage, including 157 Re’s long-standing partner: Boussard & Gavaudan Investment Management LLP (BGIM) and also the arrival of a new investor proving this platform to be extremely attractive to an increasing number of funds and institutions. CCR Re is, as such, further developing a strong relationship with ILS investors.

As part of this operation, CCR Re has benefited from the expertise of structuring and placement agent Gallagher Securities management company France Titrisation; BNP Paribas’s Securities Services business as custodian bank; and also the legal advice of Linklaters.
